The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch

Designed to resemble the grand lodges of Yellowstone, Grand Teton, and Yosemite national parks, Bachelor Gulch is a soaring structure of timber and stone with three linked mountain areas that constitute Beaver Creek’s 1,625 acres of downhill terrain. After a day of skiing, guests head to the Buffalo Bar to drink hot-buttered rum, roast marshmallows around the outdoor fire pit, or to rejuvenate in the hotel’s 21,000-square-foot spa. Accommodations Most of the 208 guest rooms and 29 suites have mountain views. The Club Level on the eighth floor offers a personal concierge and a private lounge. Recreation Skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, and mountain biking. Dining Several excellent options include Wolfgang Puck’s Spago, which opened in 2007. Worthy Diversion The resort’s Mountain Spa Mornings program combines an invigorating 90-minute guided hike, an outdoor yoga session, and an hour-long outdoor massage. Rates Standard guest rooms range from $195 to $850 per night; suites begin at $350.
